Shallot Herb Compound Butter

This Shallot Herb Compound Butter is so easy to prepare and will give new life to everything from your favorite steak to sauteed vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter softened
  • 4 shallots minced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives mince
  • 2 tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  • Let 2 sticks of butter soften on the counter. Do not use the microwave to soften or melt the butter!
  • Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a small sauté pan and warm over medium heat. Add shallots and allow them to soften for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add minced garlic and let the mixture cook for an additional 1 minute until the garlic is fragrant and soft. Remove from heat.
  • Add sticks of softened butter to a small bowl. Add cooked shallot and garlic. Also add minced chives, parsley and 1 tsp salt (you will use less if your butter is salted) Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the ingredients into the butter until well combined.
  • Turn out butter onto a square of plastic wrap and form a log with the butter. Wrap it up, twist the ends and pop the compound butter into the fridge for at least 2 hours to let it become firm again.
  • Add a thick slice of butter to hot steak, fish, or sautéed veggies!
